2018 FERRY SCHEDULES & FARE Bacolod to Iloilo / Iloilo to Bacolod

This is a compilation of all the ferry schedules and fares from Bacolod to Iloilo and Iloilo to Bacolod for OceanJet, SuperCat 2GO, Weesam Express, and FastCat. I want to make it easier for people to compare ship rates and departure times. My sister travels between Bacolod and Iloilo every month for her curricular activities.

The total travel time is 1 hour and 30 minutes or less depending on the ferry or fast craft you choose. Since she was already familiar with the trips, I’ve asked her to take note of the schedules and fares every time she travels. I will also check for any changes myself when I can. The four ferries to choose from all have daily trips.

The total ferry fare depends on which ship you take. The more expensive ones are the ones with better accommodations. I’ve also included the terminal fees for the Bacolod and Iloilo ports. These are required to enter the terminal.

Number of ferries

You may or may not have noticed that the ferry schedules for OceanJet and Weesam from Bacolod to Iloilo are the same as their schedules from Iloilo to Bacolod. That is because they both have two ships that alternate between the two ports. While SuperCat 2GO and FastCat only have one ship that goes back and forth.

Thank you for this post. Very informative and helped me plan my trip. Just like to say though that the Weesam took me 1 hr 30 minutes Iloilo-Bacolod instead of 2 hours as posted in your schedule. (timed it from boarding until arrival). But other than that, kudos to your post.

Hi, thanks for the useful information! =) how do we book 11pm schedule via FastCat? Their online booking only shows until 5pm. Are there any schedule for night departure given that we will only arrive from MNL at 8pm.
